Information and requirements for travellers entering the country from the EU with a certificate

The “EU digital COVID certificate” offers proof that you either

  • have been vaccinated against COVID-19
  • have a negative test result
  • or have recovered from COVID-19

When travelling, holders of the “EU digital COVID certificate” have the same rights as citizens of the member state they are visiting who have been vaccinated, tested or have recovered. If you have the “EU digital COVID certificate”, it is no problem for you to enter Switzerland and move around the country freely. You can find more information on the EU digital COVID certificate here as well as in the fact sheet.

Information for travellers entering the country from the EU without a certificate

Entry: depending on the nature of your journey from an EU country to Switzerland, you may have to fill in an entry form, show a negative test and/or go into quarantine, depending on the country of departure and transit. You must clarify this before you set off. The list of departure countries red-listed within the EU can change at any time. You can find an overview of these countries here and further information on entering Switzerland here.

In summary, it is possible to enter Switzerland from an EU country without a certificate if, on the one hand, the country of departure and transit is/are not red-listed and, on the other, you have a complete vaccination, have had COVID-19 within the last six months or the traveller is under 16.

Departure: the requirements for a COVID-19 compliant departure from Switzerland to an EU country depend explicitly on the traveller’s next destination country and which countries he/she has to go through to get there. For information on the entry requirements of foreign countries, please contact the competent foreign authorities. Switzerland will not stop anyone leaving the country. You will find further information on leaving Switzerland here.
